Maldives · Baros
On a small private island in the middle of the Indian Ocean sits Baros Maldives, a heavenly Eden overlooking a glistening blue lagoon. The jewel in the Maldives crown, Baros is the most relaxing beach resort you could ever hope to visit.
With its dazzling sands and coral lagoon, Baros is possibly the most picture perfect of all of the Maldives islands. An intimate resort providing a complete luxury escape, its timeless, elegant facilities include the architecturally spectacular The Lighthouse restaurant with its tented white roof, and the exclusive Piano Deck offering yoga, massages or dinner on a deck isolated in the middle of a sparkling lagoon.
There is the actual beach, city, resort or mountaintop… And then there is the space occupied by the music you’re listening to. Try to think about your favourite Ibiza vacation and your head will immediately be filled with at least half a dozen chill-out classics.
There is a real focus here on the bespoke – as well as restaurant dining, there are private dining options available at any location of your choice; spa packages can be tailored to suit you; the diving is ‘by design’; and experiences range from personalised adventure to pure romance. A main swimming pool was added in 2014 – and in true Baros style, it is not your average pool. The overwater deck surrounding the Lime Restaurant was extended to create a large overwater infinity pool; the perfect way to introduce a shared pool to this small island without compromising its natural, tranquil environment.
75 exquisite villas include extra touches such as wine chillers, yoga mats and dedicated villa hosts. The Deluxe Villas are individual thatched bungalows a few feet from the water’s edge, whilst Baros Villas have a four-poster bed and private sun deck overlooking the ocean. If you enjoy taking a dip in your own secluded pool, then it is worth opting for one of the private pool villas.
